3.5.2 Selecting a Forging Company

When the product is developed by concurrent engineering, it is advisable to select a forging company as early as possible, preferably in the preliminary design stage, for reasons set forth in Section 3.1. The selection of candidate forging companies is determined by the type of forging process, the alloy used and the size of the component. For details on forging companies, consult the Forging Industry Association Custom Forging Capability Guide or FIA's website at http://www.forging.org. See also Section 2.3 Selecting a Forging Company.
